World's Columbian Exposition 1893 - Beaded Metal Purse

Exquisite World's Columbian Exposition souvenir metal beaded purse with an embossed cover depicting Columbus and four of his men on the deck of the Santa Maria pointing toward the "New World." Black woven fabric is decorated with silver beads. The interior is lined in leather, which is somewhat worn, and is inscribed "Columbus" on the interior of the top. It measures approximately 4" long and 3" wide. Some of the beads on the back are rusted, as can be seen in the picture above. Despite this minor flaw this scarce piece would make a wonderful addition to the collection of anyone with a serious interest in the Columbian Exposition of 1893. (Stock number 003wfPurse) $225.00
